Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present Sculpted Matter, on view at both Gallery spaces June 21 - August 17, 2012, featuring artworks by Arman, Carl Andre, Anthony Caro, Saint Clair Cemin, Tara Donovan, Dan Flavin, Tom Friedman, Katharina Grosse, Richard Hughes, Deborah Kass, Jim Lambie, Sol LeWitt, Jill Magid, Matthew Monahan, Iván Navarro, Anthony Pearson, Will Ryman, Alyson Shotz, Keith Sonnier, Frank Stella, and Bernar Venet.
Sculpted Matter will explore these artists' use of material in sculpture and its importance to the work itself. These materials ranging in finish, density, malleability, origination, and historical significance, comprise both abstract and figurative sculpture.
A portion of the exhibition will be dedicated to artists working in light, with work by Dan Flavin to more recent sculptures by Keith Sonnier and Ivan Navarro. Jill Magid will exhibit a red neon word sculpture from her series I Can Burn Your Face recently exhibited at the Tate, and previously unseen in the United States. A new neon sculpture by Deborah Kass entitled Enough Already will also be on view for the first time
